Hi My Name is Philipe and I am an Animation Student in Cape Town South Africa, currently on my 2nd year of studies. I'm here to get better and learn more. I don't know yet what i will be going into when I graduate but right now I"m leaning more toward the concept side of things.
Well that's enough talk here's a painting I did yesterday it is a study on Martin Victor's "Hero of the Kulikov Battle"
The one in the below that is a drawing for a little job i did.
The last one is a concept for a fantasy landscape, that i did in December.
I will post more soon, any critiques or input are welcome
Hey here are a few updates, I went through the human skull again, it feels like I learned almost nothing the first time!
I did a very quick little portrait (the lady's face looks like it is melting on one side ).
I also went through a bit of the torso.
I also did a study of a chair outside my house.
I've got more some more today!
The first are just doodles from my brain. On second page are 30 second and 1 minute sketches and on the final page are 5 and 10 minutes.
I also worked a bit on my WIP from yesterday.
Hey mate. You got the right attitude, keep trying and don't get discouraged, it all adds up in the end ( or at least so I'm told, cause I didn't get there neither ) So you know, Loomis, Bridgeman, Hogart, all that stuff, and specially, my advise to understand structure quickly, or as quickly as one can, would be try to think of the interrelationship of the diferent masses and don't get a stiff idea on how something is suposed to look, if you apply this and understand the basic interrelation of the diferent body masses rather than trying to learn each and every muscle, you'll get far in no time.
I finally did some arm studies although i'm still a bit confused with what goes where and how. Tomorrow I will do a few more.
I also did some life drawing at pixelovely, the 1 hour class and i did a few photo studies of mountains in Nepal.
Hey Zou thanks for the crit! Yeah i have very poor line quality. I tried to do these gestures with the least amount of lines i can right now.
I do tend to use my pencil until all of the graphite is gone, that's when I remember I am supposed to sharpen it. Thanks for reminding me!
Hey guys, been a while! I was doing the #306 CHOW and this week I've been quite busy doing a few wall designs for a Children's daycare. Well here are some of my quick 30s, 1min and 5 minute gestures and I also did a few 1min animal gestures. I've been keeping an eye on the line-quality too trying to draw with fewer chicken scratch lines
Hi everyone here are some more studies. I did a few more arm studies and then went on to the shoulder masses, so many things make so much sense now... I also did a color study from a pic and a portrait its been a while since i drew a face.
Today I tried Sculptris for a while and made two heads (although they are quite incomplete). It was a good exercise to get more 3d knowledge of facial features.
I also sis a quick painting of a landscape from my imagination.
I didn't post yesterday at night when I normally do because I didn't have access to a camera so here it is today morning.
I did a bit of gesture from 30 min and then i did a bit more of arm studies. I also did a portrait trying to capture the facial epression.
For today I did a portrait without any reference there are probably quite a few things off I just cant really point anything out because ive been working on it the whole day.
If anyone wants to help and crit please feel free.
Today was my first day back in college and i took the train again and started sketching people. It was very weird, I have lost the hang of sketching people in the outside world while they are unaware of my sketching. The second is a work in progress, just an illustration exercise in drawing muscles (especially the arms)
Today I did a few sketches of people on the train, so here are some South African faces for ya, I feel like I'm getting into it now its getting a bit easier. I also did a concept for a little round character, this is for a challenge my college friends and I do every week.
